Rich Pasta for the Poor Kitchen

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
On nights my boyfriend cooks I try to find simple recipes for him to make. This recipe was perfect, simple ingredients with easy steps that result in big taste. Its easy to add anything to or good the way it is.

Vegetarian Stuffing

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
What a refreshingly awesome change up for stuffing. I made it for thanksgiving this year and got a few mixed reviews. The vegetarians seemed to love it and the carnivore seemed indifferent. I used all the optional ingredients and found I had to cook it quite a bit longer which was fine. I really liked the flavor and texture and will make it again.

Feta Cheese Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
YUM! Made these for thanksgiving and couldn't have been happier. I left the skins on my baby red potatoes (thats what I had) added a little extra garlic and sprinkled chives on top at the end. Got lots of compliments! Loved how the feta complimented the potatoes! Ill make it again next year that is for sure!

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
So this was an interesting experience for me. I had never made cranberry sauce before when I decided to try this recipe for thanksgiving. I was not quite sure what to expect but, was a little disappointed with how thin the liquid seemed to remain even after refrigerating it. The flavor was good and I will try it again.

Green Bean Casserole II

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
I have been making GBC since I was a child but looked up a recipe for this past thanksgiving. We were going to be having a lot of guests and I wanted to make sure the GBC was the best it could be. Even though it had great ratings the small changes to my original recipe didn't amount to much improvement. You can drop the milk and just add 1 can of cream of mushroom for every 1 can of green beans and get similar if not better results. Of course add the pepper. I gave it 3 stars because while there was no complaints there were no compliments either. I have in the past made it with croutons or bread crumbs on top and it tastes just as good. If you don't have the french fried onions in your pantry don't hesitate to substitute.

A Simply Perfect Roast Turkey

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
This last year we had Thanksgiving at our house for the first time. It was our first time cooking a turkey and this recipe made us look like pro's! I followed the advice of others (rub butter under the skin and wrap the wings with foil) and the recipes instructions to a T. It was perfect! Everyone asked what recipe we used! Thank you so much for this recipe Syd!

Missy's Candied Walnut Gorgonzola Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
Thank you Missy! I was a little annoyed with the extra effort I had to go through to find Gorgonzola cheese (small city) but it was worth it in the end. I don't think a thing about this recipe needs to be changed. It is absolutely delicious, I will make it again and again. P.S. The candied walnuts are amazing and make an awesome sweet treat. Make extra!

Strawberry and Feta Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
Yum yum yum! I never would have thought to put strawberries and feta together on my salad but they are a perfect match. The almonds add a nice flavor and crunch too. No one is ever disappointed when I make this salad!

Spinach and Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
This salad is quick and simple but has big taste! Cut the sugar in half and feel free to sub red wine vinegar for the white wine vinegar. I have even substituted cider vinegar with out regrets! Easy, summery and delicious!

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
We were looking to spice up our salad life when I came across this recipe. It is worth every ingredient. We make this so often now we hardly need a reminder of the ingredients or the amounts. Yummo!

Scalloped Potatoes II

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
This recipe is awesome. It is a perfect base to make any "flavored" scalloped potatoes you could possible dream of. Just add what ever spice(s) you wish to either the milk or the layers and you will never be disappointed. I have done a garlic/onion version, a chive/parsley/basil version and a cheesy pepper version. You can make it how you want and it turns out every time! Thank you for sharing!

Zucchini Risotto

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
When cooking arborio rice you have to commit to stirring a lot. If you have the time to do that then this dish is definitely worth it. I despise sun dried tomatoes and so I skipped them, I added red pepper instead. I also added a summer squash in addition to the zucchini. Great dish!

Rapini-Walnut Macaroni

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
Very delicious. My boyfriend usually remarks to these kinds of dishes saying, "I don't like green stuff in my pasta" but this time he said, "I like this!" aka phenomenal. The flavors complimented each other really well and it made great left overs.

Libby's® Famous Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
This recipe is perfect period. I had never made pumpkin pie before even though it is my favorite and said I would make it for a Christmas dinner. It was delicious! Everyone thought I must make it all the time because it tasted so good! Thank you so much for sharing!

Dolmathes

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
This was my first experience working with grape leaves and so it was a bit of an adventure. It took a while for me to roll all the rice mixture up making the whole process last longer than I had planned on. I enjoyed the flavor and did as previous reviews suggested and added extra lemon but, I don't think all that olive oil was necessary. There was a lot in the bottom of the pan when we took them out and it kinda made the outside of the grape leaves slippery. My boyfriend wasn't a fan but, I think Ill try it one more time (with some adjustments) when we have guests over to get more reviews.

Spinach Lasagna II

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
This recipe was very easy to make. We have made it twice and both times it turned out good. I gave 4 stars because the flavor could use a little zing but I had no complaints. I substituted egg beaters and used light ricotta the second time and it tasted just as good as it did the first time. This is a good recipe to use to add and subtract what you like. I would definitely recommend this for kids or a big family it is filling.

Pogaca (Feta Dumplings)

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
So, the word dumplings might be a little misleading. Yummy delicious feta stuffed biscuits is a little more like it. These were a big hit when I made them. I used egg beaters, light sour cream and fat free yogurt and they still tasted awesome. I recommend these as a dinner roll or breakfast biscuit! Yum!

Black Bean Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
I shared this recipe with my mother and she said her and my father just loved it but, when I made it...something must have went wrong. I felt the black bean flavor was overwhelming and they were too moist. If I try this again and yield better results Ill be sure to update my review, in the mean time I am disappointed to say I wasn't a fan.

25-Minute Tunisian Vegetable Couscous

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
I did enjoy this recipe however, there were some issues. First of all it definitely takes longer than 25 minutes. Next, it did need some increases in the flavoring/spices department even with the orange zest it still was missing a kick. Overall, it was pretty good but I think it could have been better.
